Ten-minutes can't be up

I translated the conversation below into English:

A: Each child can only play the ball ten minutes, your ten-minutes time is up, give the ball to me.
B: No. Ten-minutes can't be up so quickly, it's not your turn yet.

Is it correct to say "ten-minutes can't be up" here?

Thank you.
